The Rock River Valley Racing Pigeon Club's FAMILY FUN DAY AND PIGEON EXTRAVAGANZA  yielded a message to Illinois Governor Pat Quinn.  Event attendees were invited to send messages in a unique family entertainment day that included a fishing tournament for the kids, prizes, lunch, an animal menagerie for kids, displays from police, fire and military personnel, and much more.

Once the message carrying pigeon arrived at his home loft, he was transported to the Governor's office to deliver the notes, making a super ending to a great event!

Shown here, with messages delivered, are Chad Compton, Sara Moore (Gov. Quinn's Assistant), and Irvin Force.
